One of the most well-known brands in the world, Microsoft is now not only a software company (Windows OS, Office suite of productivity tools), but also a hardware giant with XBox gaming console and Microsoft Surface line of computers. As of 2016, MS was the largest software company in the world.
Microsoft is also a cloud infrastructure provider, with the Azure platform among the top 5 Cloud services, alongside Amazon's AWS and Google's Cloud services.
Microsoft is almost always in a hiring spree, with its strategy changing to prioritize cloud services around 2014, the company is actively recruiting pms and tpms alongside sales staff to improve its revenues and offerings.
Although more and more companies are shifting to remote-work arrangements and interviews are switching to be more online, the basic interview structure remains the same.
The recruiter would normally reach out to you within 7 business days. Feel free to send a follow-up message after 10 days to ask about the status of your application. Good luck!
Interview preparation is the most important step of every job application. Do your research on Microsoft specific interview techniques (you can find some of the popular Microsoft interview support services at the bottom of this page). Also, reach out to the recruiter and ask if he/she can share some insights.
With thousands of applicants racing to get the same position, your CV should stand out. Don't forget to tailor your CV to each position you're applying and prepare a short cover letter if the role requires so.
To increase your chances of securing an interview, you'll need to be strategic on which roles you apply to. Make sure that your past experience fits almost perfectly to the requirements in the role.
If the job poster is directly reachable, feel free to send a short follow-up message after 2 weeks to ask the status of your application. Follow-ups are a good way of "reminding" yourself to the recruiter!
